Glycolic acid is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from sugar cane (it can also be made synthetically). Due to its smaller molecular size, glycolic acid is more effective than other alpha hydroxy acids and when used correctly can improve the look and feel of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

As we know, exfoliation is removing dead skin, debris, and pore-clogging material away from the surface of the skin to reveal newer, brighter skin underneath. Just know there are two different kinds of exfoliation: physical and chemical. Physical refers to anything with a slightly grainy or abrasive texture that you massage into your skin to manually remove buildup. Chemical exfoliation, on the other hand, utilizes safe-for-skin acids that break through debris and dead skin on a cellular level.

Improves Acne

Glycolic acid peels are often used to treat acne and acne scars. By delivering a stronger dose of glycolic acid than many over-the-counter acne treatments contain, the peel targets problem areas and removes layers of breakout-causing dirt, bacteria and dead skin cells from your face and neck (or back and shoulders).

Facial treatments Plymouth.How does it work?

Glycolic acid works in a number of ways, primarily through its exfoliation properties. On application the glycolic acid penetrates the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together. This action allows the layer of dead skin cells to dissolve revealing the underlying skin.
